Yes, we can chat about it here! Better yet let's do something! I propose that everyone on the forum make a monthly commitment to pledge .5% of their monthly income to the monastery.
Monthly Income $1200.00 x .005 = $6.00
It is approximately the cost of one movie per month.The time we would of spent watching the movie could be spent in prayers for the Pope.
Are we not obliged to support our monasteries and churches? Isn't it also a privilege ?
It is agreed that $6.00 is not alot of money but if you multiply that by about 50 people, and if those people are honest with their pledging it would make a heck of a lot of difference.
It could also be arranged to have a monthly reminder for those of us who have problems with our memories.
Many thanks to all of you for hearing me out!
p.s. - I won't be able to join the chat tonight, that is the time I will be praying for the Pope. Besides after reading some of the posts here I am fearful of a live chat!
